Introduction by Thomas Merton
This is an insightful manual of the so-called simple cautions and points of light and love of the world's most celebrated mystic. It is arranged not only for religious but for all lay people who are eager to discover the ascending paths to the mystical mount of Carmel, whereby they may reach peace of spirit and the true intimacy of divine love.
In a finely judged introduction, Thomas Merton shows how these powerful sayings, at once hard and luminous, reveal the essential ascetic doctrine of the Carmelite Doctor.
